I can't tell if this headline is a joke or not. On the off chance its not - Hitler and Stalin did not have a personal relationship. As far as is known, they literally never met or spoke with one another, even through interpreters.

Just the wrong war. This was the basic thought in 1914. Turns out none of the rest of the family actually liked Wilhelm.

well. sure.  but really it if the world would have backed down frmo WWII somehow, the pace would not have been accelerated so much.  ( never mind the fact that nuking ASIA made them all mutate into super smart people )

Well the old resistive touch screens? Maybe one million, tops.

The new generation of fast-response capacitive touch screens are easily worth the Allied military deaths - and that's setting aside all the other wonders of our era.

How many deaths is mass production of penicillin worth?  How many deaths is it worth to have protection from Malaria? What about an effective blood bank, how many deaths is that worth to you?
